First step towards a new adventure

Posted by Steve Galea at

Well, the big day is finally here.

With that in mind, I'd like to welcome you to Algonquin Fly Tying Supply - my online store and longtime dream. 

The shop, though filled with thousands of items, is a work in progress. There's still so much more to place into inventory. So stayed tuned, visit often and browse carefully - the site is going to evolve.

What I'm hoping to create is a place for those fly tyers who get excited  about quality materials and well-made flies. I'm talking about those of us who still look at a Jim Gartside, Art Flick or Polly Rosborough pattern with appreciation and wonder and who, on viewing some young woman's feather earring, can only think of the flies that misplaced  hackle might have made.

I have been fly tying for almost 40 years now and the thought of learning a new technique or seeing a skilled tyer create a truly fishable fly still causes me to smile.If you feel the same way, you're the kind of customer I want. 

So thanks for visiting Algonquin Fly Tying Supply. Please tell your friends about my site. And don't hesitate to contact me at with suggestions or requests for products. As I said, this is a work in progress and I want to get it right.

May the top of your waders always be higher than the water you're standing in,
